Group Visitation

Southwestern University offers individual appointments to all prospective students and has established a group policy that is necessary with our limited staff and tour guides. Due to the large number of group visit requests, appointments are made for high school groups on a first-come, first-served basis. We appreciate your interest in visiting Southwestern and hope we can accommodate your group.
